^ without having to resort to modifying the exterior or drilling hole on the outside of the bumper, I meant.

Side note. I'm running a staggered set still decided to rotate my wheels.....had to have them rotate it back.

We tracked it down to the front lower air dam(hard plastic piece under the bumper/radiator) and the bottom of the bumper lip/tabs, we messed with it for a bit until everything lined up perfectly, and voila no more gaps!

Please note we are using the APR Carbon front lip, so we thought that may have been contributing to the problem with getting everything lined up as we had no flex in the bottom of the bumper, but hopefully this may help some of you, or at least give you an idea on where to look.


Edit, I stole this picture from @DC-FRS, hope he does not mind

The large plastic air dam(#22 in pic) was not sitting right with the lower portion of the bumper and was sort of forcing the bumper down a bit. I had to push, pull, prod, poke, talk nice to, and yell at it until it was all lined up perfectly.
Brilliant example of VERTICAL thinking.
